Recipe: Vegan Coconut Tofu Curry

If you are craving a curry dish but have never cooked indian before, this is the dish for you. The recipe is simple and the ingredients are easy to find. If you are a more experience with cooking curries or want to give this recipe a little more nutritional value, you can include seasonal local vegetables, which I have done (photo shown at the end of recipe) but for this recipe, I will keep it  simple.
